If you're a high school student looking to get a degree in theatre, this is a chance to demystify the college audition process, find out what to expect from a college theatre experience, and get to know the top schools and their faculty before making decisions on where to apply.
Interviews are available to watch on demand after the live streams at Playbill.com/CollegeTheatreAuditions.
